Posted By Nicole Lau on 28/04/2017

Once again, Curtin Student Guild has recognised the excellence standard of teaching at Curtin University, as nominated by students.

On Friday 21 April in the Bankwest Lecture Theatre, Guild President Liam O’Neill presented the well-deserved awards.

According to Curtin Student Guild President Liam O’Neil, these awards are especially important because Curtin staff are nominated by the student community.

“Great teachers can change the lives of their students and these awards are a thank you to those extraordinary individuals at Curtin who have inspired their students to realise their full potential,” said Mr O’Neill.

“All our award winners have demonstrated excellence in classroom communication, engaged and promoted student participation with passion and enthusiasm.”

School of Science Sessional Lecturer Anne D'Arcy-Warmington was the recipient of the Undergraduate Award in Science and Engineering. Dr D’arcy-Warmington was recommended for the way she motivates and engages her students which promotes an effective learning environment.

Helen Tang who nominated Dr Abhijeet Singh said that he was an excellent tutor who teaches from the heart.

“I heard Dr Abhijeet Singh’s name from the other students before I know him and before I studied the auditing unit. One of my friends told me:” when you studying your Auditing unit, make sure to choose Dr Abhijeet Singh as your tutor and he will be surely the best tutor you have ever met. Teaching with your heart, that is Dr Singh. That is why he was nominated and deserves this award.” - Helen Tang, 2016 EiTA nomination.

Award winners receive $1,000 to spend on improving the learning experience of their students.
